    I'm holding a contest on my FB fan page. I managed to change the default landing tab of non-fans (edit page-manage permissions-default landing tab) but I was wondering if it's possible to change the landing tab of fans. Right now the fans see the wall...I'd like them to see the contest tab. Before, there used to be a wall settings-default tab thingie but I don't see that option anymore. Any ideas?

    No, I actually want the fans to go to the same page as non-fans. Right now, when fans visit the fb page, they go by default to the wall tab, and I want them to go to the contest tab instead :confused:

    okays that is very simple :)

    click on edit info then go to the tab that says "manage permissions" on the left hand side then go down to the dopdown box which says "default landing tab" and change it to the name of which your contest tab is :cool:

    That's what I did but it only changes the default landing for non-fans. I read their terms and it looks like fans are automatically taken to the wall tab.

    When I had a contest, I used this http://promotion.binkd.com/ Then I made my landing page "Contests." I think both fans and non fans got to that landing page, but I am not positive. Try it and see.

    yes this is possible. install this app on your fan page/app page:

    Code:
    http://www.facebook.com/iframehost
    i use that app on all of my fan pages and it gives you the ability to show different pages to your fans and non-fans.
